From the outside, the RVR looks a lot like the Outlander, with its flat nose. It’s a nice look. The interior is nicely assembled and features good quality materials. The steering wheel offers good grip and can be adjusted in height and depth. There are cruise control and radio buttons on the steering wheel spokes. Seats are comfortable, offering decent lateral support for a car in this category, but the seats are nonetheless firm – a little like a Volkswagen. . It’s practical and offers good handling. The suspension is firm, but it’s not that bad – even when faced with bumps and potholes.
On the whole, this vehicle scored well. Compared to other vehicles in its category, the oddly named RVR offers good balance, nice road handling, and carefully crafted fit and trim. Since the RVR sells for a few thousand less than the Outlander, it must certainly cast a shadow over its big brother. But price is not the only difference worth considering. The RVR is a sport utility vehicle that rivals the Jeep Compass.
In conclusion, Mitsubishi engineers did a great job, but at the end of the day, this less expensive model steals some of the spotlight from the Outlander. In an attempt to beat the competition, this manufacturer shot itself in the foot.
